Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We prospectively studied the sleep patterns and laryngeal function of 20 patients with multiple system atrophy and found sleep disturbances in all subjects and vocal cord abduction dysfunction in 14 (70%). In three patients with nocturnal stridor and complete vocal cord abductor dysfunction, continuous positive airways pressure eliminated laryngeal stridor, obstructive apnoea, and haemoglobin desaturation.
